Daniel Alves completes a month in prison and awaits provisional release

This Monday, 20, Daniel Alves completes a month in prison, awaits provisional release and his defense claims that Robinho’s case interferes with progress

This Monday, the 20th, Daniel Alves completes a month in prison, accused of rape and sexual assault by a young Spanish woman. The right-back was arrested without bail on January 20, already in Spain. Since then, the athlete’s defense has made attempts to respond in freedom and awaits some court decisions.

In the latest case updates, it is expected that the barcelona court respond definitively, earlier this week, on the Brazilian’s requests for provisional release. According to the main portals of the Spanish press, the answer should be announced this Tuesday, 21.

The player’s defense proposes that Daniel have his passport withdrawn, or even use a geolocation bracelet, to stay under observation, but out of jail. However, the prosecution claims that the player’s financial condition could facilitate his escape from Spain, placing Brazil as a possible destination. Thus, the Justice continues to analyze the arguments before making its final decision.

The lawyer Cristóbal Martell Perez-Alcadethe professional responsible for defending the Brazilian, gave an interview to “Newspaper” and spoke about the case. According to himself, the case of Robinhowho was convicted of rape in 2013 in Italy, but lives in freedom in Brazil, is a factor that is making it difficult for Daniel Alves to defend himself.

“Robinho doesn’t help us. Brazil, like so many other countries, including Spain, does not surrender its citizens. Furthermore, it does so as a constitutional imperative. Article 5 of the Federal Constitution of Brazil prohibits the surrender of nationals for crimes of this nature. I don’t know Robinho’s case well enough. I don’t want to speak out, nor can I, nor should I. But, in fact, the fact that Italy, until today, has not been successful in complying with Robinho’s sentence does not help the provisional release of Daniel Alves”said the lawyer.
